Blood Sciences Laboratories,
Letterkenny University Hospital
The project involved the reconfiguration of the existing Pathology Department to provide a new integrated blood sciences core laboratory, blood transfusion laboratory, and associated accommodation. These facilities are an essential component of the diagnostic services offered by Letterkenny University Hospital.
Outdated structures were removed and a new extension provided while the existing remaining building was reorganised and modernised. A new lobby standing between the new building and the existing one links the two parts. The main entrance and reception area to the department was reorganised to simplify circulation for visitors and staff and to make the processing of samples more efficient.
The existing envelope was upgraded to provide improved thermal performance and air tightness.
